Arrr...greetings, me crafty mateys. I'm pleased that ye weighed anchor on me blog this day, International Talk Like a Pirate Day. I have a wee card for ye to see, so pour a cup o' grog and remove that eye patch.
If ye are confused by the jargon, or are lookin' to expand ye pirate speak, check out this handy English-to-Pirate translator so you too can shiver me timbers!
I started with a dark card base to which I layered some great textured paper and strips of an ancient map that I crumpled and then flattened before adhering it to my base. The background for this old barnacle bucket (pirate speak for ship) was created using dye ink and my trusty brayer. I added a few white caps with my white gel pen.
The treasure map that leads the way to the pirate's booty was stamped and edges torn to create that old weathered look.
Me hearty gratitude be yours for stoppin' round. Now go have a jolly good day and don't forget your parrot and eye patch! arrrrrrrrrrrrr
